Virtual Kilcolman

Centering Spenser:  A Digital Resource for Kilcolman Castle

A new website built at East Carolina University analyzes and reconstructs Edmund Spenser's life, writing and castle complex at Kilcolman, County Cork, Ireland, where the great poet and colonial administrator lived in the late 1580s and '90s as part of the Munster Plantation.  The website draws connections between Kilcolman, other places in Ireland, and Spenser's writing, so as to enrich our understanding of all three.  It takes advantage of a fresh wave of historiography, archaeology and biography on Spenser and early modern Ireland more generally.  The website is both factual and openly speculative.
